Liver Disease & Disease Resistance @ TriScience.com
Bad Honnef, Germany (PRWEB) May 22, 2013
The aim of the Repository for Biological Sciences Information including its' new liver disease and disease resistance resources is to provide reliable information on various areas of scientific interest in a format that can be digested easily. The information is grouped according to interrelated sections and categories and presented in the simplest words and terms possible helping users understand the context of whatever topic information is searched on.
The Disease Research Section contains scientific information on any kind of disorder in the structure or function of a living organism. A disease is any kind of disorder in the structure or function of an organism, including humans, plants, and animals. Disease can be caused by external factors, such as viruses, bacteria, fungi, parasites, proteins, prions, and infections. However, there are also diseases that are caused by dysfunctions within the organism’s body, such as autoimmune diseases. After inclusion of the two new categories, this section contains ten categories including Animal Disease, Disease Antibodies, Health and Disease, Heart Disease, Inflammatory Disease, Lesions, Liver Disease, Disease Resistance, Syndrome, and Viral Disease. Users can receive alerts for newly published content in this section by subscribing to the Disease Research Section RSS feed.
The newly published category Liver Disease contains scientific information on hepatic disease which is a broad term used to refer to the damage or disease of the human liver. There are different types of liver disease, including blood sugar problems, digestive problems, abnormal absorption of fats, immune system disorders, hepatitis, alcoholic liver disease, fatty liver disease (also known as hepatic steatosis), alcoholic hepatitis, cirrhosis, primary liver cancer (can manifest as hepatocellular carcinoma or as cholangiocarcinoma), primary biliary cirrhosis, primary sclerosing cholangitis, the Budd-Chiari syndrome, Gilbert’s syndrome, and other hereditary liver diseases. The category currently contains over 3,500 articles including one on systemic and renal production of thromboxane A 2 and prostacyclin in decompensated liver disease and hepatorenal syndrome, serum iron in liver disease, lipid deposition in kidneys in experimental liver disease of dogs with choledocho caval anastomosis, the red cell sedimentation reaction in the diagnosis of liver disease in the horse, and on D-tubocurarine in liver diseases. Website users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to the Liver Disease RSS feed.
The new category Disease Resistance contains scientific information on the ability of living organisms to resist the onslaught of infectious agents or potentially harmful medical conditions. The term can also refer to the capacity of an organ, a tissue, or a cell to withstand the effects of harmful physical or environmental agents, or refer to the ability of an individual organism to ward off the damaging effects of physical, chemical, or microbiological injury or infection. Resistance is a system of biological structures and processes within an organism that protects again disease. The category currently contains over 3,750 articles covering somaclonal resistance in Cavendish banana to fusarium wilt, an article on screening of larch in vitro for resistance to Mycosphaerella laricina, a summary covering screening for fire blight resistance in apple (Malus pumila) using excised leaf assays from in vitro and in vivo grown material, and an article dealing with risk and resistance factors in the adaptation of mothers of children with cystic fibrosis. Website users can receive alerts for newly published content in this category by subscribing to the Disease Resistance RSS feed.
The repository groups information in the natural sciences according to interrelated sections and categories that will help readers understand the context of whatever topic is searched information on. Each unit contains a definition composed in an understandable way and each item in these sections and categories contains up to twenty clickable tags.
